Abstract:

The main objective of the proposed research was to investigate four important practical issues in the understanding, design, and implementation of group communication services. These issues were 1 Performance maintain good overall performance of group communication services under several different operating conditions, 2 Semantics design a small set of powerful group communication semantics to ensure ease of implementation and good performance of the applications built using these services, 3 Flow control design and evaluate efficient general purpose flow-control techniques that handle temporary buffers in group communication services and Real-time responsiveness investigate the feasibility of designing and implementing real-time responsive group communication services implemented in distributed systems that are not completely synchronous.
